How to Deal with Omicron - Traditional Chinese Medicine - Enhance Human Immunity!
International Journal of TROPICAL DISEASE & Health,
COVID-19 has been known as the part of “epidemic disease” in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). The reason is that the human body feels the external toxin and pathogen. The pathogenesis is mainly "wet, heat, poison, stasis, deficiency" and the lesions are the principal in the spleen, lungs, and stomach. There are 4 COVID-19 waves in South Africa including ancestral variants, Beta, Delta, and Omicron. Compared COVID-19 cases of the 4 waves and found the admission rate of Omicron was 4.9%, Delta was 13.7%, and Beta was 18.9% (P<0.001). It also found that 28.8% of inpatients of Omicron were critical patients, while critical inpatients of Beta, and Delta were 60.1% and 66.9% respectively (P<0.001). The infectivity of Omicron is ten times that of Delta. Day on Jan 17, 2022, there were about 125 million omicron infections were diagnosed in the world. The current COVID-19 epidemic situation is frustrating. Today there are still no effective vaccines and targeted therapies for the treatment of COVID-19. Fight against the epidemic diseases in China, 90% of confirmed cases have been treated with TCD. TCD can effectively relieve symptoms, shorten the course of the disease, improve the cure rate, reduce the mortality rate, and promote rehabilitation, the total effective rate is more than 90%. This unique system of TCM has opened a new avenue to fight the novel pandemic.
